Hello everyone! Welcome! I am hosting a blogger series called “Ten Days of Christmas Inspiration” and I get to start it off today! So grab yourself a mug of hot chocolate, put your feet up and enjoy your look around 🙂
I love gingerbread things. Like REALLY love them. But…..not to eat. For decoration purposes only ha ha. I also love the greenery and rustic trend going on right now and of course the copper. I put them all together and came up with this fun tablescape! My kids loved it. A gingerbread house for the centerpiece? Heck ya. They wanted to eat dinner at the table right away (and eat the centerpiece too!).
The gingerbread house I bought at my local department store and saved out the candies for my kids. I used white frosting only and sprinkled with white glittery sprinkles. The house is sitting on a cake stand which is sitting on a marble cutting board. I wrapped the greenery around the cake stand and then down the middle of each side of the table.
These coasters are so fun! I bought the tree slices from Hobby Lobby and painted chalkboard circles on them. They add such a fun rustic vibe to the table and the names can be changed anytime! You can find a tutorial to make them at the bottom of this post.
These napkin rings were so easy to make and they cost very little. I wanted to combine the copper and greenery together and these did it perfectly. The white cloth napkins rolled inside was the perfect finishing touch. You can find a tutorial to make these at the end of this post.
I just love the copper silverware! I thought I was dreaming when I found them at Hobby Lobby for only $7.50 a set. They add such elegance to the table. My husband rolled his eyes when I told him that “even-though-the-package-says-they-can-go-in-dishwasher-please-wash-them-by-hand-just-incase.” Ooops, hope I’m not too crazy of a wife *blush* 😉
The copper cookie cutters and whisk were also at Hobby Lobby. I sprinkled a little powder sugar on the table and then placed them on top. Such a fun and inexpensive table decoration.
So what do you think? Are you a copper fan?
Here is the promised tutorial for the copper napkin holders. They really are super quick to make and can be used over and over again!
